Permission to Enroll in an SCPS Course for Undergraduate Students

Students from colleges outside of SCPS may request permission to enroll in some courses offered in SCPS. Most SCPS courses meet on an eight-week evening schedule at the Water Tower Campus or online. Please review the information below before submitting a request.


Students wishing to enroll in an SCPS section must meet the following requirements:

Enrollment Request Dates

Request admission to a SCPS on or before the following dates:

Fall Session I 2013 July 19, 2013
Fall Session II 2013 September 19, 2013
Spring Session I 2014 December 6, 2013
Spring Session II 2014 February 10, 2014
Summer Session C 2014 May 2, 2014

Requests will not be taken after the above enrollment request dates for each session.


Please note the following guidelines when requesting to enroll in an SCPS course:

Request Procedure

Complete the Non-SCPS Request Form and submit it with LOCUS transcript to SCPS:

E-mail: scps@luc.edu
Fax: 312-915-6508
Office: School of Continuing and Professional Studies, LT-401, WTC

Requests will be reviewed during the first week of each enrollment request date (see above chart). You will be notified of enrollment by phone and/or e-mail.

If you later decide not take the course, you must drop in LOCUS before the first day of the session and not the first class meeting. For session start dates, see the schedule of courses.

Attendance Policy

Students in SCPS classes are expected to arrive promptly and attend every class meeting. 

Success in SCPS courses will heavily depend on attendance and participation in the classroom.  Because of the intensity of the eight-week class format, missing one class is equivalent to missing approximately two weeks of course content in the semester format, and will affect your grade.

If you are unable to attend or will be late for a class meeting, you must notify the instructor in advance of the absence. The instructor reserves the right to decide how absences will affect your grade, and whether make-up assignments will be given or accepted. Unexcused absences may result in failing the course.

Withdrawals from SCPS Courses

SCPS courses follow an adjusted withdrawal schedule than the 16-week calendar. Students who enroll in SCPS courses must adhere to the SCPS academic calendar and the withdrawal schedule as outlined by the Office of the Bursar.
